The letters of reference should be directly sent to us by the recommenders.

We expect applicants to indicate with whom of Faculty members of the GSBC they plan to cooperate, how their previous expertise relates to their future research focus, and which specific interdisciplinary research questions they want to address in their work.

All applications are reviewed by the assessment committee. Promising candidates are invited to a personal interview. Each candidate is interviewed individually. The interview may consist of a short presentation by the applicant and a question-and-answer session. The presentation may focus either on the candidate’s past academic work (e.g., diploma or master thesis), or on the planned dissertation project.
